We rather liked this one, although more form the point of view of it being a well acted interesting piece on an interesting subject than it being great drama or great comedy.
- our friend Michael Billington in the Guardian suggests that almost too much stuff happens – three stars;
- John Thaxter in The Stage enjoyed the brilliant cast and production while struggling “with the plot, if any”;
- while Dominic Cavendish in the Telegraph found it a muddle-headed mess.
Janie and I describe silly or farcical comedies as being “a bit Vincent Golightly” (don’t ask, long/fictional story) and this was a bit Vincent for sure. But we enjoyed our evening in the theatre and topped it off with some Spanish food at Don Fernando, as is our Richmond habit most times.
